|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
A charming old village house in a small village near Santanyi. Full of character, this traditional house has been carefully restored in a traditional Mallorcan style.
The house is nestled in the centre of the village, surrounded by other houses with beautiful higgledy-piggledy roofs and natural sandstone walls. It is a few minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches in Mallorca. The village itself is very quiet and tranquil band offers a wonderful base for summer holidays near to the sea. The stunning coastline and charming surrounding towns and villages offer a wide range of things to see and do throughout the year.
The house has two bedrooms and is furnished in a simple and traditional rustic style, offering a charming and tranquil base during your stay on this beautiful island.
Living area: The house is accessed by an outside staircase. There is an open plan kitchen and dining area with an open fireplace. The kitchen is small but adequately equipped and has a gas hob and a fridge with a freezer compartment. There are double doors from the kitchen that open onto the large raised terrace with a table and chairs, perfect for a leisurely outside eating. A curving stone staircase leads up from the kitchen area - the stairs are very open so please be careful with young children or elderly or infirm guests. The main living area is upstairs and has a sofa and a TV (English and German channels). Double doors from the living area lead to a further upstairs terrace to the rear of the house.
Bedrooms: The two bedrooms (one double and one twin) have been simply decorated in keeping with the traditional feel of the house. The master bedroom is upstairs. Downstairs, there is a twin bedroom and the main bathroom.
Outside: There are large raised terraces to the front and rear of the house. There is unrestricted parking outside the house on a quiet country road.
We also have a separate three bedroom house that sleeps 6 guests and has a small private pool. Please ask for details if you are interested in renting this house separately, or perhaps both houses together (to sleep up to 10 people). The three bedroom house is advertised on the Home Away website reference: 1072962.
We are an English family with two small children. We live on the South coast of England and have a holiday home in Mallorca, which we rent out when we are not using it ourselves.
Emma and David Mann purchased this cottage in 2012
We love traditional old buildings and we fell in love with the house as soon as we walked through the door. It has been restored in a very sympathetic style, retaining the character and history of this lovely old building.
The house is in an excellent location. It is in a very quiet village but close to local amenities like shops and restaurants. There are beautiful unspoilt beaches just a few minutes' drive away.
The house was easy to find and only 45 minutes drive from the airport. It has so much character and the pool was well maintained. There are areas of shade, and outside terraces with views. We made use of the great outside pizza oven by the pool! The beautiful organic architecture was stunning and the house is lovingly and thoughtfully looked after - very apparent. A great selection of beaches and coves nearby, one only 25 mins walk away. There is a great boulangerie in the village and lovely places to eat just a 10 minute drive away.
I highly recommend this as a relaxing holiday location.
Such a pretty house. The interior is really magical - so quaint and traditional. Furnished simply but stylishly and obviously with love and care. The other nice feature that you don't really see from the photos is the enormous terrace - very peaceful with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. We had a relaxing break visiting the pretty beaches nearby and also loved the market in Santanyi. There are also some nice restaurants in the village if you want to stay nearer to home. A great choice if you want to experience a bit of the unspoiled Mallorca in a house with lots of character.
We spent a week at this property, there were a number of things we weren't satisfied with, we enjoy eating out, but also cooking and eating where we're staying, this wasn't so easy using a gas cooker as temperamental as Awkrights till and singing your eyebrows was a possibility. The kitchen generally wasn't well equipped, the fridge is on the small size with a small freezer compartment, no microwave. The TV worked ok but it was tuned into German channels and try as we did we couldn't find any UK channels, the DVD player appears to have a disc stuck in it and wouldn't work. The sun loungers have seen better days and have what appears to be damp spots on them. The clothes airer was broken.
Privacy in the bathrooms is restricted and we couldn't get the downstairs shower to work, if you're not very agile the toilet in the upstairs bathroom may present a problem due to its close proximity to the hand basin.
The village has a few places to eat , the best without doubt was the more upmarket Fusion restaurant followed by the Black Pearl.
There are a number of really nice beaches a short drive away from the village.
Beschreibung für Anfahrt - Durchführung und Findung des Objektes nebst Schlüssel-Safe, waren recht easy!
Austattung war in Ordnung (WLan wäre perfekt gewesen), aber grundsätzlich ausreichend.
Sauberkeit lies ziemlich zu wünschen übrig.
Schon bei Anreise war Boden im Haus, der Außenbereich innerhalb des Objektes und Utensilien ziemlich verschmutzt.
Einige Mobiliare sollten dringend mal erneuert werden, wie ggfs. Fensterläden. Außenbereich-Sitzgelegenheiten samt Kissen und Schrim gehören eher in den Müll. Das Flair des Objektes ist aber durch den Bau und die Innenarchitektur unbedingt gegeben!!!
Fliegennetze über den Betten wären notwendig gewesen (wurden dann selbst gekauft).
Warmwasserboiler funktioniert bei Ankunft gar nicht und wurde in schnellstmöglicher Art ausgetauscht! Dafür Respekt!
Für einfache Zwecke ist es ausreichend, was man, wie vorfindet - Luxus darf man natürlich nicht erwarten, aber eigentlich Sauberkeit!
Empfehlung für Freunde - durch Sauberkeit und Abgelebtheit der Möbel - mittelmäßig
Ursprünglichkeit/Ambiente: Sehr schön!
Kontakt via SMS mit Vermitter in England - Top!
Essen: 3 Ge-Minuten über die Straße einfach und sehr gut! - Sonst unweit in Ses Salines - "Le Teatre"!
Lebensmittel-Einkauf: 4 km in Santanyi im LIDL (hochwertiger als in Deutschland) und Eroski Lebensmittelmarkt
Klamotten-Einkauf: Santanyi viele Läden - empfehlenswert der Wochenmarkt am Mittwoch und Samstag!
The house is in the centre of the pretty village of Es Llombards. Es Llombards itself is a charming little village located near to the town of Santanyi. The village has two restaurants, two small local bars, a fantastic bakery and a weekly market on Thursdays, all within a short walk of the house.
The village is surrounded by open countryside and one of it's best features is the proximity of so many great beaches. The beaches at Cala Llombards and Cala S’Almunia are about 2 miles (3km) away and the beautiful beaches of Cala Santanyi, Cala Moro, Cala Mondrago and Es Trenc are also all nearby. These small, secluded coves are some of the best and most unspoiled beaches on the island and are perfect for swimming, snorkelling or sunbathing. There are also spectacular walks along this most beautiful stretch of coastline. The surrounding countryside is great for bird watching and for enjoying nature.
The small town of Santanyi is about 2 miles (3 km) away. Es Llombards and Santanyi both get their distinctive character from the beautiful local sandstone from which their buildings are constructed (and which was also used to build Palma cathedral). Santanyi is a lovely town with a variety of restaurants, bars and nice shops. It has a large artistic community with several local galleries and art spaces. The town's market is a great meeting place that offers visitors and locals alike an opportunity to experience its diverse culture. It is open on Saturday and Wednesday mornings throughout the year.
